Hello, how can I block the arrow keys from the Scheduler so that the user cannot change the month view's calendar?

I have blocked out and set all the days that is not within X month to be hidden, so I do not want the user to be able to use the arrow keys and accidentally change the view.

 

Also, related to the scheduler, how can I loop through and go through the entire month day-by-day to grab all the appointments?

Something like, for each day in MONTH....

 

Thank you

Hello Sean,

Thank you for contacting us.

If you need to stop navigating when the user presses the left/right arrow keys of the keyboard, you can create a custom SchedulerInputBehavior and override its HandleNavigationKey method where you can stop the basic logic. Here is a sample code snippet: Feel free to modify it in a way that suits your requirement best: 

this.radScheduler1.SchedulerInputBehavior = new CustomSchedulerInputBehavior(this.radScheduler1);

public class CustomSchedulerInputBehavior : SchedulerInputBehavior
{
    public CustomSchedulerInputBehavior(RadScheduler scheduler) : base(scheduler)
    {
    }
 
    public override bool HandleNavigationKey(KeyEventArgs args)
    {
        if (args.KeyData == Keys.Left || args.KeyData == Keys.Right)
        {
            return true;
        }
        return base.HandleNavigationKey(args);
    }
}

Regarding your second question, you can use the Appointments collection of the control. You can iterate it or use a LINQ query to get all the appointments in a specific month.

I hope that you find this information helpful.
